As the UK’s largest stockist of meters ideal for a variety of needs, our expertise comes in very handy when customers need to select the ideal meter for their requirements. This blog will cover a selection of our gas meters, and how we came to begin stocking a fantastic range of meters.
It began with the TBX…
When MWA Technology began trading in 1993, we introduced the TBX gas meter to the UK market, and the following year we were appointed as the sole UK distributor. Thanks to their low pressure drop, the TBX meters became very popular – the IGEM UP2 standard advised that the pressure drop between the incoming supply and appliances should be less than 1mbar in 21mbar systems.
The TBX meters were developed to measure the gas consumption of small boilers, industrial furnaces and other individual pieces of equipment. Light and affordable, the TBX Series can handle a wide range of pressures and flows, with two built-in pulse oscillators to allow for remote meter reading.
The TBX meters were specified for use with the Prison Service RTU building programme, which used fast track modular construction of the plant rooms. Later, the meters were specified for the Ministry of Defence’s Single Living Accommodation (SLAM) project, and then for the Aspire Defence and Basing programme. With such important assignments for these meters, it speaks volumes of how well these meters perform their tasks.
Following on from the success of the TBX range, MWA began selling other brands, including the Instromet I series meters in 1995, swiftly followed by the Schlumberger range, now known as Itron. Increasing sales on these ranges paved the way for the company to start supplying water meters and ultrasonic heat meters, but we can save those for another blog.
MWA’s stellar reputation with gas meters has continued with the Common range. The company stocks the CGR-FX range, which is designed to measure quantity of gas for custody transfer or technical measurement applications.
Each of the devices, ranging from the CGR40 to the CGR100, are mainly applied for gas flow ranges from 0.2 up to 650 m³/h, and the pressure range up to 20 bar. Featuring an aluminium body, the CGR-FX range is fitted with low frequency pulse output as standard, and is suitable for natural gas and LPG ranging from -20°C to +60°C.
Also fitted with low frequency pulse output, the Common CGT-02 Quantometers are made from cast iron or carbon steel, while also being suitable for natural gas and LPG ranging from -20°C to +60°C. Ideal for horizontal and vertical pipelines, the CGT-02 has a rangeability of 1:20.
Finally, when it comes to the Common range, the aluminium/steel CPT-01 Quantometers have been designed in order to provide our customers with reliable and inexpensive measuring instruments for secondary flows.
The CPT meter with a flange fitting features a low frequency pulse output as standard, and is suitable for natural gas and LPG ranging from -20°C to +60°C, with a biogas option also available in both flange and screw fitting meters. Also ideal for both horizontal and vertical pipelines, it features a nominal rangeability of 1:20.
CPT Quantometers are high quality meters with easy maintenance, and are compatible with a wide range of external devices e.g. volume correctors, data loggers and data transmission systems. This makes them very popular with our domestic and foreign customers.
